|The Baggage Depot isn't quite open, but the new bus loop is|
Apparently this started on December 18th - the ill-fated day of the Cascades derailment near Olympia.
Looking through the windows and doors of the Baggage Depot, you can see a mix of old and new. Some weathered old "barn doors" look to be preserved on the inside, able to slide over the apertures of the new doors. By contrast, there's a modern concrete floor it looks like - though I suppose it might be very old and just refinished and smoothed - and most of the furniture and fixtures are modern. It's funny to see a modern pair of drinking fountains in front of the bathrooms. There's no attempt to make the interior look old-timey. But a few vintage accents remain as reminders of its antiquity.
Once it's open, it will be interesting to see!
So that's a hopeful note on which to start 2018.
